  2. Great collection, thank you!

  3. The motorhomes made from a large Douglas Fur has to be one of the most interesting motorhomes ive seen. If only you could find trees like this today and they were in abundance like they were back in early 1900s. Safety and speed were not top priorities since speed was not an objective.
